LEARNING EARLY - 3-year-old kindergarten classes bring success to two schools
By Alan Hamari
St. Dominic's in Brookfield launched a 3-year-old kindergarten program this year, and Brookfield Christian School's "Bright Beginnings" pre-kindergarten program welcomed its third class of 3-year-olds when school started in the fall. Several other private schools offer preschool programs, but few are open to students younger than 4.
St. Dom's principal John Chovanec said the School Board decided to launch the K3 program after hearing considerable interest from a number of parishioners. Chovanec said "quite a few" families expressed interest when St. Dom's conducted a parish-wide survey on the program last fall. Interest in the program has stayed pretty steady so far, Chovanec said. St. Dom's has 17 students in its three-day Monday-Wednesday-Friday session and 12 students in its Tuesday-Thursday class.
Socialization and academics
Chovanec said the class combines social interaction, academic instruction and religious education. "I think that (parents) like the opportunity of that social time for their kids and that introduction to school for their kids," Chovanec said. Chovanec said the school, which has about 450 students in K3 through eighth grade, has received financial support from the parish. Making room forced the school to get creative with space, so St. Dom's officials rearranged classrooms and converted a former storage area into the new music room. St. Dom's K3 program is open to the whole community, but "parish members get the first shot," Chovanec said. The tuition is also higher for non-parishioners, he said.
Convenient for parents
The school also provides an extended care program, allowing parents to drop off their children before or after class without the hassle of picking them up in the middle of the day, Chovanec said. "I think certainly with both parents working a lot of time, they're able to drop their child off in extended care and not have to worry about them getting to their class," Chovanec said. Chovanec said it's hard to predict future interest in the K3 program but said he's been impressed with how things have gone so far. "We've really enjoy having the little ones in the building," he said.
